A rare pearl among our careful selection of the best addresses right now

En esta antigua casa de pueblo con ‘esencia’ que se encuentra en medio de la ciudad, los comensales se encuentran con cocina fresca y saludable. Está decorada con un estilo industrial sorprendente, cálido y acogedor, pensado para disfrutar de la mejor cocina a la brasa en un ambiente inigualable. Nestor Oreiro y Victor Ortega mandan en los fogones. En su carta encontramos productos de temporada, arroces del día (el de pato y trompetillas triunfa siempre), carnes y pescados frescos que se elaboran en su cocina abierta (da confianza). Muy original y sabroso su steak de ciervo con cremoso de berenjena a la llama. La carta de vinos es un mestizaje de climas, viñedos, paisajes y culturas para que uno disfrute en cada sorbo.

INSIDER tip

No te quedes sin probar su vermut Lobo Pardo elaborado con tomillo, hinojo, canela y jengibre.

    We had a lunch on the first day in Valencia, Spain. The lunch in Escencia was really nice, I think it was the best lunch while we stayed in Spain! Paint on the wall, which drawn by daughter of owner was also lovely. We had wonderful time at Escencia. We hope we could visit there again.
